Come join us this year for another Owyhee adventure. We will have 3 days of great trails, from the foothills of the Owyhee Mountains south of camp, down to the Snake River Canyon to the north. This is a beautiful time in the Owyhees with grass and wild flowers, water in the creeks and snow on the mountains.

Every day a different trail!
Day 1: Alder Creek 25/50 - you'll feel like you're in the wilderness with several creek crossings, old homesteads, sweeping views, beautiful rock formations and canyons. All holds will be out of camp. see map and details
Day 2: Hart Creek / Birds of Prey 25/50 - ride two large loops; south of camp into the rugged Hart Creek drainage, and north of camp to the Birds of Prey area with soft trails and sand washes. One half-way hold in camp. see map and details
Day 3: Snake River Run 30/60/80/100 - This will be a special out and back trail along the Oregon Trail to the Snake River. Ride below the canyon walls, by ancient petroglyphs and old homesteads. A day of beautiful scenery, river wildlife and great footing for the horses! Ride along the Snake River for 20+ miles! The 80's and 100's will cross the Guffy Bridge to Celebration Park for a vet check.30 milers will start and finish at Rio del Sierra Ranch

New Start Times:80/100: 5:30, 60: 7:00, 30: 8:00 (from Sierra del Rio Ranch)

We've added the 'elevator' option to the Owhyee Fandango 80 - 100 mile distance. Both start at the same time, follow the same trail out to Rio Del Sierra Ranch, 20 miles along the Snake River and back to camp at 80 miles. If you sign up for the 80 mile distance, you can opt to elevate to the 100 when you get back to camp. (for completion only - no bonus points). see map and details

(** we have trails around the bad boulders now!)
